    ECUK to launch ICT Technician register

    Picked up from Wagnerk on Certforums
    ECUK to launch ICT Technician Register - CertForums
    ECUK to launch ICT Technician Register

    There is currently no professional qualification for the growing number of technicians who work in the key fields of IT and communication systems. The Engineering Council UK (ECUK) has announced its intention to rectify this omission by offering such individuals the opportunity to apply for registration as Information and Communications Technology Technicians. Those meeting the competence requirements for entry onto the new register will be granted the post-nominal title ICTTech.

    The Institution of Engineering and Technology (IET) has been at the forefront of developing the ICTTech award, which will initially be offered through a small group of engineering institutions licensed by ECUK. Assessment of the first applicants should begin by the end of this year, with a view to the ICTTech register going live at the beginning of 2009.

    To see the whole article see here & here.

    As for me, I'm very disappointed that the BCS isn't leading this as they should be the organisation in the forefront in the field of IT/ICT. I mean how would the IET/ECUK feel if the BCS decided to develop their own engineering certs/quals? Oh well, apart from that, I feel that this is a good move - standardising standards and lifting the IT profession.

    As a member of the BCS I am a bit disappointed they're not leading on this, the reason I joined was for professional development and to help keep up to date with all things IT!
